your system should actually read about 14-14.5 to be charging properly.
--> It should read that. My problem is I am constantly reading over, that can't be right. The math doens't add (I'm and electrical engineer)
as for the burning smell, it could be some type of protective oily film that was present on the exterior or even interior of your cat conv.-from the factory.
--> That's what I was thinking... Can't find any thing else
most likely your working your clutch too hard.
do you ride your clutch?
--> Ride the clutch?? I did that once when my dad as teaching me to drive.. I think he told me then " If you have to do that, you shouldn't be driving".. and as all of us know the smell of a burnt clutch is something that haunts you forever.. haha
If you can think of anyhting else that it might be, I am open to any suggestions...
Thanks for the help so far though.....
